Simple Blueberry Muffins

It’s official. Chocolate and I have broken off our long term relationship. We’ve had a bumpy one. A really messy one you could say. Love-Hate. We break up then get back together in a very passionate way. Make up sex style. I’m disappointed in myself for just saying that. Not really. But for reals, it’s over this time. For at least 5 weeks. Jason bet me $3 that I couldn’t resist chocolate for 5 weeks, until after the CrossFit Open, so I must prove him wrong. He will be wrong.

Wanna know what I did this Saturday night? It was pretty epic so get ready. I ate dinner with my parents and uncle, we cooked fajitas, then talked about child birth because my uncle just had a kid, I mostly talked about how gross it is, then I went home. Don’t worry, this is where sh*t gets real. I dyed my hair (because my natural color is blonde so I have to dye it every 2 weeks) then put on a yeast face mask and watched youtube videos. Yep. I sat on my couch with my glossy hair slicked back, a face mask hardening my skin that smelled like rising bread, in a huge baggy sweatshirt and shorts with a hole in the butt cheek. What am I doing with my life.

Oh wait, I also made a dessert that failed. Wish you could understand the smells that filled my house that fine Saturday night. I’m pretty sure I was high. High school all over again. Kidding. Slightly.

I also cried during a muscle up wod. I had 20 to do and finished 19, failed 6x on the 20th one, tore my hands, then cried in disappointment. I also kicked the wall and said ‘f*ck you’ loudly. Real mature Juli, real mature. I hate you muscle ups. I.HATE.YOU.

What’s up with people wearing track suits? So weird.

Ryan Gosling is adorable. I wish he would take me on a date that included him falling in love with me. And smiling at me. A lot. It’s not that much to ask people.


Simple Blueberry Muffins

  • Yield: 8-10 1x




  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. If you’re good at baking, you’ll know to mix the dry then the wet ingredients then mix together, but I do all the ingredients together and it works out just fine.
  3. Place ingredients into 8-10 silicone muffin cups in a muffin tin. Or you can use muffin tin paper liners.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Just keep an eye on it, they will puff up and look adorable.
  5. Eat them and be happy. And merry.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Also 19 more than me! Good gracious that’s awesome…yet I also feel the pain of not being able to finish. You’re kicking ass, woman!

  2. Yes! My husband grew up above the Arctic Circle, so he always had blueberry muffins (berries from the tundra!) growing up. Thanks for the recipe- I’m about to blow his mind with it when he comes home from work next week!

  3. Things that need to be said:

    1. I was disturbed about the child birth sentence and almost skipped the whole paragraph. Instead I grew a pair (figuratively), and read on to discover your best qualities. Hair dying, yeast face mask wearing, youtube watching, paleo chef girl-r-dee, crossfitter. I can’t wait to see who your soulmate is.

    2. Muscle ups were created for 5’0 gymnasts weighing in at a whopping 110#. Not athletically inclined average to above average women. It’s just not meant for us 5’6+ girls. That’s like saying you hate chocolate because it doesn’t fit in your dietary description. And that’s not why you hate it.

    3. Oh, and the muffins…send them east. Better yet bring them to me.

  4. I almost cry A LOT during my WODS, well, lately, with my raging hormones it’s been what I’d consider ‘a lot’…my first time experiencing that was my 2nd run at Helen, fuck. I fucking HATE thrusters, so much.

    Did these rise like that in the oven or did you mound them up? I find that almond flour stuff never rises, just hardens into whatever shape you mold it…

    <3 u JB.

  5. Juli, I found your blog over the weekend, thanks to a Pinterest post.

    Let me just start by saying, I think you are quite hilarious! I love your sense of humor! I just recently started the Paleo lifestyle, last week, yep REAL recent! So far, so good, lets just say that I haven’t killed anybody yet, which I though was perhaps a possibility because I couldn’t have my oats in the morning. Plus, I really wanted to shovel all the girl scout cookies I just recently bought down my gullet, but that’s a whole other story! I resisted the temptation. Those darn girl scouts! Just sayin……

    I’m new to Crossfit as well! I have a whole lot of new stuff going on my life I guess you would say! I tried it once a few ago, sipped the kool-aid and haven’t looked back! I’m LOVING it! I previously worked out 5-6 days a week, mainly focusing on weight training and small doses of HIIT cardio, lord I hate cardio! I was getting burnt out and needed a change. Crossfit has refueled my fire! Yee haw!

    Anyway, enough about me! Just wanted to drop you a line and say thanks for this awesome blog, always making me laugh and for these awesome recipes! Now that I know I can make blueberry muffins and still eat Paleo, my life is pretty much complete!

    PS: Could I use Almond Flour in place of the Almond Meal in this recipe? I have a big honkin bag in my fridge and would like to use it before it looses it’s freshness. I made apple protein muffins with it previously, let’s just say they were so bad my dog wouldn’t eat them. Yep, that bad! SOOOOO incredibly dry, so needless to say I’ve been skeered to use the Almond Flour again. lol Let me know what you think.

    1. Welcome to the Paleo and CrossFit community Julie! I hope you’re cool with the best chapter of your life!! Thanks for checking out my blog!!

      And yes you can use almond meal or almond flour in the recipe, they are pretty close to each other in the almond family.

  6. Okay, I love you! Officially. I was totally thinking of berry muffins this morning. Didn’t have a recipe. Did a berry crumble instead. It rocked..but not a muffin.

    Psyched that you posted this today! Do you think unsweetened applesauce could be substituted for the honey?

  7. those are super fluffy, and blueberries are cheap right now. i dropped a quart of rasperries all over the check out line on Saturday, and i thought to myself ‘jeez i am glad those weren’t the blueberries, because they would be out of control rolling.’

    sweet potato brownies=delish. they were the first choco i had since Jan15. not that i was counting. for $3 you can do it. then use that $3 to buy chocolate.

    also, during your next youtube sesh you have to watch ‘my drunk kitchen’. you will thank me.

  8. Another win…I thought you said you couldn’t bake…pfft

    …while that saturday night of yours does sound eventful, you should spend next saturday night watching ghost rider…he’s badass like the honey badger and since you are also honey badger badass, you should see it…who doesn’t love super heroes who suck souls…just sayin 🙂

      1. I’m a comic book nerd Juli, its Ghostrider…not a chick flick, but killer action scenes and good for some laughs, not exactly a plot driven emotional film. I will be expecting you to prove you are awesome when the next Dark Night comes out 🙂

  9. Awesome recipe! My son (4 years old) is totally into eating Paleo these days after reading Sarah Fragoso’s new “Paleo Pals” cookbook. We made your blueberry muffins this morning and he ate THREE.

    1. I just got my copy of Paleo Pals in the mail from Amazon today. I hope it’s enough to convince my 4year old to make the switch! Keep your fingers crossed for me! Glad it worked for yours! 🙂

  10. just found your website the other day, and wanted to try this recipe since it seemed pretty foolproof (i’m not that great in the kitchen domain). substituted coconut flour instead of almond flour since the whole foods near me ran out of almond flour/meal. still taste great! the tang of the blueberry cuts through the sweetness of the honey. great for a quick, on-the-go breakfast 🙂

  11. As soon as I finish my Whole30 (9 more days!) I am so making these, they look amazing and I’m really surprised you got them to rise like that, everything I’ve cooked with almond flour has been flat!

    Well done on the muscle-ups, I struggle with pull-ups! 🙂

  12. I can’t wait to make these.

    Every. Single. Filthy Fifty I do, I throw my effing jump rope. Or when my shoe laces come untied, I throw a fit…legit tantrum. I’m mature in the gym too.

    Good luck in the Open!

  13. Hi..I am new to eating Paleo and found your blog by browsing. I am trying out your recipes and so far… PaleOMG is right!! These Blueberry Muffins are awesome!! Also just made your Crockpot Mexican Chicken over Cilantro Lime “Rice” and both my husband and I are like “WOW!” This is the best tasting food I have eaten in years. Thank you so much for convincing me this is the way to eat forever!!

  14. oh, if i wasn’t on day 9 of a whole30… 21 f*ing days left… i’d scarf the dozen. want want want.

    i registered for the open knowing full well it will be a major fail… whatevs. good luck with yours!

  15. Pffft get in line Juli, I’m a hetero man & I’d love Ryan Gosling to take me out & smile at me lots too….but it aint gonna happen

    As for the chocolate, you’re a fool chocolate told me he still loves you & you will be back together sooner than you know

    Tell me you’re at least still seeing his best friend cacao powder?

  16. Making these tonight! I added a touch of coconut flour to stretch it to 12 muffins and used blackberries & whole cranberries because I had them on hand. If the muffins are as good as the batter… I can’t wait!

  17. Just made these muffins. I needed some of that coconut oil so I went to whole foods..looking around…thinking..almond butter??? regular butter?..we bought almond butter the other day..looked like peanut butter..ahhh that is almond butter..hello..came out awesome..made another batch of sweet potato brownies..and I just saw you put up that you just made beef enchiladas ..I just made beer enchiladas for dinner wife loves your recipes and so do all her crossfit going work mates.cheers

  18. Delish! Yours came out far more adorbs as I filled the cups too much but they tasted great and I will share the recipe with others.

    Squirrel: I totally bought Enjoy Life choco chips and probably will pay dearly (later) for eating too many. It’s pretty awesome how great the food is these days that has far fewer ingredients/chemicals. Loving it and it’s worth it to pay a bit more for better stuff.

    Keep up the great blog!

      1. Interesting thing to note. Before i started eating paleo/primal, the day after a carb load i was completely useless. That whole batch has to be like 400g of CHO, no ill effects this morning. Yet, I still have the full muscles, super tight and dry feeling, pretty sweet.

  19. First off, I rated this post- oh dear, you made me smile! I’m gonna try this recipe because of that special ‘shredded coconut’ ingredient and because I trust your recipe.

  20. Hi there. I just came across your site and so far I like what I see! I have been living a paleo lifestyle for a month while on a cleanse and hope to keep it going! At the moment I have these in the oven, and I am amazed how much they have risen! Oh, timer is beeping, better get back and check them out!

  21. Your muffins came out much prettier than mine~they puffed up then sunk in the middle. BUT – that doesn’t matter, they are delicious! Started paleo diet 3 weeks ago today and really loving it – also enjoy your blog! Thanks!!

  22. Juli – This is my first stop to your site, and you just cracked me up. My kind of humor, girl! Oh, and I would totally kick the wall and say F*** it if I got 19/20 MU’s! As a matter of fact, I think I have done that!! HAHA, not to muscle up’s though, cause I’m not badass enough (YET) to do ’em!!

  23. I have always been a blueberry muffin lover and these are amazing! Thanks for sharing! Now to lock them down so I am not tempted to eat them all right now!

  24. Hi,

    I recently discovered your website and even though I’m not a cook or a baker I want to make almost everything on here! I thought I would start with these muffins, but I can’t find almond flour/meal anywhere. Can I sub in coconut flour?

    1. If you use coconut flour, I’m not sure it will have the same effect. Coconut flour is pretty dense and you may end up with pretty dry muffins. Try using more almond butter and half or even a third of coconut flour

  25. Jenna Anderson

    These turned out so delicious! I filled them up waaay too much but they still taste amazing. i am having so much fun trying all your recipes. I haven’t been disappointed yet!

  26. We have only been eating strict Paleo for a few months now but have tried a few different muffin recipes *I have 3 kids and they have always enjoyed blueberry muffins.
    This has been the best of the 3 we have tried.
    Thanks so much–finding great recipes like this one help make the switch much easier, especially for the little ones!!

  27. So YUMMY. PaleOMG is so perfect. Had to modify slightly due to what I had on hand. Used regular organic hpney and sweetened coconut. But still over 80% paleo (which is my goal 80% 100% of the time). Super good. Tomorrow I hope to try the French Toast….

    BTW, childbirth might be a bit messy but it’s an amazing empowering experience and a great way to test your strength and tap into that “paleolithic” instinct rather that relying on what the over processed modern world claims to be right and healthy.

    Thanks for your site. Love, A CrossFitting, HomeBirther 🙂

  28. Freakin’ LOVED these! I just recently went paleo over the last month, so this was a much needed treat for me! Thanks for all of your wonderfully hysterical posts 🙂

  29. my love for you grows leaps and bounds with every post! these muffins are DIVINE!! (though mine sunk in the middle too, but who cares how they look when they’re this delicious and don’t stick around the house long?!)

    I’ve been Paleo for a year, but just (FINALLY) made the leap with my 4 year old 3 weeks ago. I’ve had the hardest time gettin her to eat enough FAT. she plowed her way through these muffins before I could blink….think I’ll keep these on hands AT. ALL. TIMES. for awhile!

    once again- you’re the hero!!

  30. Made these last night and oh my heaven! They are complete paleo mouthgasam worthy 🙂 Didn’t have blueberries so I used strawberries instead and they were delish! Can’t wait to make more and gift them to my paleo family friends

  31. I made these this morning….holy crap they are delicious! I divided the mixture in half (pre-blueberry) added blueberry to one half and Enjoy LIfe chocolate chips to the other. Both types turned out A-MAZING. Next time I might mash some bananas and add those in as well.

  32. Hi there! I made these this afternoon and, like everyone else has been saying, they are delicious. Paleo baking is a little different from all the other baking I’ve ever done but I’m learning – like with these: next time, I won’t fill them so full as they overflowed big time. That baking soda is what does it. I also added a few blueberries and a little more coconut on the tops before they went into the oven. However, even my husband loves them so these will become a regular in our house! Oh – and for the commenter who can’t find almond flour/meal, if she has a Trader Joe’s somewhere near her, they carry it and it’s generally cheaper than any other place you can find it. On a personal note, I’ve now been doing crossfit for about a month and still wonder some days what I’ve gotten myself in to 🙂 Thanks for the awesome recipe!

  33. Just discovered your blog a few weeks ago and am hooked!! I know that grains don’t work for me, I keep trying to make them work but in the process put on lots of weight. So am back to trying to figure out what to eat, and wow you have shown me that I can eat. This is the first recipe of yours that I tried and loved them – in fact my whole family loved them, and so easy to make!! Am now making a grocery list for other recipes. Thank you and look forward to waking up in the morning to find your email in my inbox!!!

  34. I just made these, doubling the blueberries and they turned out wonderfully! Thank you sooo much for sharing the recipe 😀

  35. Hey! So I just found your blog via Health-Bent. Pretty stoked. Lots of your recipes are right up my picky paleo 18 month old 🙂 just put your blueberry muffins in the oven and cannot wait to surprise my daughter in the morning!

  36. I love these muffins. I just keep making them! I saved a little batter sans blueberries and put chocolate chips in them… then made mini muffins. It was like a muffie from Panera!

    I had some reservations about using so much almond butter… couldn’t help but fall into old habits and think about all the fat in these things. But then I realized that I feel ten times better than I used to. I eat more fat in one day than I used to in an entire week. I’m really ok with it. Thanks, Juli!

  37. Wow – I’m addicted to your site and your witty prose girl! I just started crossfit in March and decided to try Paleo April. Your recipe was first on my list thanks to a rec from a fellow crossfitter. Delicious. My 5 year old niece chowed one down and they were the perfect b-fast prior to snowboarding. Can’t wait to try a couple more recipes (and read your hilarious encounters of course!).

  38. Another win from PaleOMG! you are freaking awesome. I had to make a few substitutions in this recipe because I went clothes shopping instead of grocery shopping yesterday. I’m not sure how it happened, but I got 14 muffins from this recipe…and I filled the muffin cups almost to the top! hoooooraaaaay! I didn’t have any coconut, so I used a little extra almond meal. I didn’t have enough almond butter, so I used a half cup of almond butter and a half cup pureed pumpkin. Oh and my blueberries were frozen, so I used a whole cup, microwaved them, and drained off the extra juice. Amazing.

  39. These were so freaking yummy! my boyfriend could not get enough, he seriously ate 6 for breakfast. I had to take them away from him!

  40. These took me like 2 minutes to whip up and 30 seconds to inhale.. was my saving grace after a week off tooo many eggs for breakfast!!! Thank you!

  41. I made these muffins yesterday and they are, hands down, the best paleo muffins I’ve made. My 4 and 2 years old girls gobbled them all up. Thanks!

  42. I made these and they are THE BOMB!! My friends who are not Paleo loved them too. I am making another batch tomorrow. THANKS!!

  43. Thanks for posting this recipe. I made them and OMG they were awesome!! I’ll be trying more of your amazing recipes soon!

  44. Hey! I made these tonight, because.. well.. I LOVE blueberry muffins and I dont care what time of day it is. It’s like 9 and I’m gunna go get me one. I hope they are good, they dont look as light as yours. we’ll see!!

  45. True or False: I can freeze these for later?

    Loving your recipes! I’m new to this whole paleo club, eating to treat my PCOS…but I am LOVING IT! I feel like a million bucks =)

  46. wow!
    what a wonderful treat.
    so…..after eighteen months of paleo and many weekly WOD’s, i found your awesome site.
    my teenage kids were intrigued albeit they usually don’t eat anything that doesn’t have sugar. they decided to take on the role of chefs and made these muffins.
    after all this time away from corn–blueberry–morning glory muffins and bagels, it was a gratifying experience to indulge in these muffins. so easy to make, unbelievably tasty.
    they have now replaced my eggs or banana on almond butter breakfast.
    thanks so much—and i’m now a true fan of your site.
    come do a WOD in NYC when you’re in the big apple.

  47. i was having a SERIOUS blueberry pancake craving when i came across these little jems…they are amazing! i haven’t been livin the paleo lifestyle for very long and am always skeptical with paleo baked goods but DAMN these definitely proved me wrong..thank you for sharing all of your goodies with us!

  48. I wanted to do something with the little wild blackberries I picked with my daughter. So happy I found your recipe. I had to make a few substitutions based on what we had in the house – about 1/4 a cup of natural applesauce in place of 1/4 cup of almond butter, cause we ran out, blackberries instead of blueberries, and coconut nectar instead of honey. But they were awesome!

  49. These are delicious – instead of shredded coconut, I used ground flaxseeds & they turned out great. So moist and yummy. I’ll be using chocolate chips instead of blueberries for my next batch! A hit with the BF too which is always a feat 🙂

  50. Yummy! I added 1/2 tsp ginger and zest of one orange, oh and an accidental 1 tsp of baking powder instead of half. They came out perfect. Thanks!

  51. Whaaat? These are amazing little devils! I am not a sweet fan so these hit the spot without being overly sweet. Love, Love Love them!!! Thank you!

  52. Made these for the first time last night, they came out perfect and looked beautiful. With the amount of honey, I thought they would be much sweeter and so glad they weren’t. Since I am not really a blueberry fan, I will make these w/raspberries next time.

  53. I made these for my brother in Afghanistan. Food sucks over there. He will love these. Going to share on my website too.

    Mahalo! Jamie

  54. These muffins were amazing, and you are hilarious! I missed muffins… thank you soooooo much.

  55. This has been my favorite Paleo remake of Blueberry Muffins! I also added a bit of vanilla to mine! MMMMmmmm. Love em!

    1. There’s a few websites that will help you calculate the calories… I usually use However…now that I’ve started Paleo, I REALLY don’t want to know the nutritional info. As long as it contains ‘good’ ingredients, that’s enough for me. These might make me sad knowing the calorie/fat content 🙂

  56. I just made these and am in LOVE with them! My first ‘dessert’ since going Paleo a month ago. I’ve been desperately craving something sweet and these hit the spot! I got 12 fairly big muffins out of the recipe, and used 1 cup blueberries instead of 1/2 a cup b/c it just didn’t seem like enough. Perfect!

  57. Juli,

    YUM! I just recently found this website beacsue I was looking for a Paleo meal plan. Let me just tell you I’ve cooked more in the past few weeks than I think I have my whole life. NOT KIDDING. Your recipes are great and your blog is very entertaining. I’m so excited that I can eat Paleo and enjoy it! I’ve been blabbing about this site to all my friends too. You’re going to be a star girl. You have “IT”, not that I’m a talent agent, but you do.

  58. Just tried baking these muffins yesterday, and they are glorious. This is my first attempt at paleo baking (I was never big on baked goods even before paleo), and these are wonderful. I used coconut flour instead of shredded coconut (because I didn’t have any shredded), and it was just fine.

  59. I made these for breakfast this morning for something different. They were fantastic! My kids, 5 &3, ate 3 and would haven’t eaten more if I would have let them. I didn’t have shredded coconut so I shredded a small gala apple. Turned out great. Thank you so much for your great recipes. You have inspired me to create my own recipes. I made BLT egg cups the other morning. Yumm.

  60. These were so cute and tasty, and I was so glad when they actually puffed up! Usually I can’t bake anything right. 😉

    However I used only 2/3 cup of almond butter instead of the whole cup, because I wanted to tone down the calories a bit. They turned out amazing anyway!

  61. Okay these were awesome. The batter alone! Sigh. My 2 and 7 year old took them off the counter!!!! Awesome!!!!

  62. OMG! Though, I had to add a whole cup of blueberries, as that is what is in one of those small clamshells…made these before leaving for my Saturday WOD…and couldn’t stop thinking about them on the way home! Absolutely delish! I don’t trust myself, so I froze most of them, and left two in the fridge (I managed to get a whole dozen out of the recipe using tin baking cups). Thanks for all of your recipes, videos included, you rock! Can I give the recipe 10 Stars instead? 🙂

  63. I just made these and am in love/awe…AMAZING! I can’t wait to freeze them for future breakfasts/snacks. Thanks!

  64. I have a birthday coming up and I was thinking about altering this recipe to make a birthday cake. I was thinking replacing the blueberries with raspberries, adding some lemon zest and topping it with a lemon/honey glaze. What are your thoughts? Any suggestions?

    I made the muffins a while back and they were amazing, I loved the way they puffed up.

  65. Brandyce Leonard

    These blueberry muffins were Awesome! I can’t wait to try more of your recipes. I love your site…you’re hilarious!

  66. I finally got around to making these. Uh-mazing!!! I’ve been looking for something to have on hand for post workout of when I want a muffin. These are perfect.

    Thank you for your experimenting and posting tasty recipes for all of us to make!

  67. Hi there!

    Just made these except I substituted fresh strawberries (bc I needed to use them up!) and added some fresh unsweetened coconut and some raw pepita seeds. Also, didn’t have quite enough honey so I had to supplement with blue agave. The result??? The most perfect Paleo muffins I’ve made … and I’ve made a LOT of muffins searching for a good one.
    Gorgeous, golden brown and didn’t stick at all!!!
    You have provided me with my new fav basic muffin recipe!!

    Just wanted to say THANKS and keep up the good cooking!


  68. Hey! I just found your blog and this recipe while searching for a quick muffin recipe. I’m new to the paleo lifestyle and I’ve been searching for a recipe like this for a while. I just pulled these muffins out of the oven and they are delicious! I didn’t put the blueberries in, and added vanilla extract. Nonetheless they are DELICIOUS. THank you!!!

  69. Awesome recipe! Didn’t have any blueberries on hand so substituted with frozen raspberries. Extremely tasty and moist (sorry – can’t think of any other word) compared with other paleo muffins I’ve tried that can be a little dry. Loving your blog!

  70. these are amazing!! after eating four, my 4-yr snuck 3 more when i wasn’t looking!! lol. i may have to hide the rest so mommy can have them. thanks for posting. i reblogged about them on my blog.

  71. My husband and I loooooved these. The texture was like a ‘real’ muffin and the flavor was scrumptious, we will definitely make them again. We used frozen (thawed) blueberries and homemade almond butter. Thank u for your recipes, you do a fantastic job!

  72. Love, Love, Love your recipes! I make them as after WOD snacks for our box and everyone raves about them…so thanks : )

    I’m sure you’re aware, but I’ve found other websites using your recipes/photos and claiming as their own….do you all share between one another?

  73. Guess what? I brought two muffins for my friends. they loved it!! Thanks for sharing your recipe. I will make more muffins for holiday.

  74. You are frickin hilarious. The muffins were pretty good too! I also hate muscle ups, gross, not that I can even do one, I just hang there feeling ridiculous.

  75. I can’t currently have honey. What would be another substitute for that? The only sweetener I can have is Stevia. Can I just sub that? What amount would I use?

      1. they are just GREAT!
        even my BF had them for breakfast and he is quite a challenge when it comes to breakfast

  76. I’m doing a whole life challenge through my cross fit gym, which means I have to eat paleo for two months! I’ve made a few of your other desserts and love them. The problem I have with this one is the honey in it.. Unfortunately the challenge is paleo with a twist-no honey allowed! I can use stevia and have discovered coconut sugar.. Any recommendations on the amount of stevia I would need???? HELP.

  77. These muffins are the best paleo muffins I’ve made! Seriously stunning – you wouldn’t know they were good for you 🙂 Thankyou.

  78. Awesome!! I added zest and juice of 1 lime and couldn’t stop singing “you put the lime in the coconut” :).

    I must say that my kiddos (4 & 2) prefer your paleo recipes over most. So congrats! So often kids paleo recipes are a bit too “dumbed down”. Little ones actually have quite discerning tastes and this momma knows she can count on you in a pinch. THANK YOU!

  79. They are delicious!! Ive tried other paleo muffin recipes but this one tops them all! Really moist My boyfriend eats super unhealthy and he even likes them

  80. Delicious! I doubled the amount of blueberries and would even add more next time. Turned out great even without muffin liners – I just greased my muffin tins with coconut oil.

  81. I feel like I’m the only one who did something wrong when making this recipe- my muffins are grease balls. Puffed up? Yes. Delicate and flaky? In a way I never thought Paleo baked goods could manage. Eatable? I’m not sure. It’s like the things have been deep-fried. I’ll reduce the amount of almond butter and try again.

  82. I found your blog a week or so ago and have printed up a few recipes to try. I just made this and its totally 5 star worthy…..LOVED them. So so easy too. Made them tonight for my husband and I and could believe how big they were. I got 14 out of the recipe and they were all of a decent size. Thank you and good luck with the cookbook. Mine cooked in 20 minutes perfectly.

  83. I thought I had made a batch of these, but for some reason they disappeared…. they were that good!!! Loved this simple recipe. Need to start another batch for this weekend.

  84. Instead of using coconut oil, can I use butter. If so, do I need to add more to compensate. If I use butter, are the muffins going to come out more dry

  85. This is a FAN-FRIGGIN’-TASTIC recipe!!! My boyfriend made these last night for dessert and it took everything in me not to go Cookie Monster on them. LOL!! Thanks for sharing!

  86. Can I substitue any other ingredient for the coconut? Not a big fan of coconut, but REALLY want to make these! Thanks and love your blog!

    1. the coconut acts as a binding agent so it may be a bit difficult but adding some chopped nuts may help it stick together better without the coconut. worth trying!

  87. i know you hear this oftern…but these are AMAZING!!! i have made them before and today had to make them for a friend’s brunch – they were so loved that none were left over and i am now making batch number two of the day…i had a lack of coconut flakes but added pumpkin seeds for an extra crunch and instead of half a cup of blueberries I just toss in a whole pint ;o) – super yummy!
    Thank you for posting these – paleomg is my go-to site for when i have no idea what i want to make…cause I kinda wanna make it all!

  88. First recipe I have tried off your site, made them for breakfast, they are amazing! My other half is a bit mad for anything blueberry so I know he will love these as well! Printed off a ton of other recipes as well to try!

  89. I never really comment on sites, but I had to after trying this recipe. Amazing!! My 4 yr old loved them. I used Trader Joes almond meal came out great. Thank you!!

  90. OMG…..soooo delicious! Im not a baker, and had failed mulitple times on previous baking attempts. This is my first time making paleo muffins, and they came out sooo good!! YUMMY. My husband started gobbling them up last night….THANK YOU! and I love your website!!!

  91. Came across this lively blog and read the entire post, then realizing this chick is cool haha. I’m so trying tho receipe tomorrow. Quick question, do you think I could exclude the shredded coconut? I hate that ish and rather deal with its oil than the actual thing?

  92. WOW! These are amazing. Finally found a recipe that works. I’ve failed, and wasted so many f’cking eggs, way too many times. So thank you! Had to cook them for about 25 minutes but I’m chalking that up to a generally cooler oven.

  93. I am SO in love with your site! Starting our Crossfit Paleo challege tomorrow, and trying to plan out a month of food so I can’t cheat. This is my first attempt at paleo so I’m a super nervous. Can these be made without Honey? What would you sub in instead? Any great other snack ideas?!?!

    1. you could use maple syrup or coconut nectar as your sweetener! i just look at snacks as smaller meals. so maker sure to have some protein in your snacks to keep you full!

  94. LOVE your blog! You are HILARIOUS & most definitely inspiring 🙂 Your chili is amazing & I’ve taken some of your cookies to my box & they were a mega hit, even my 6’3″ 150# junk food addicted hub approved to my amazement! Plan to take these muffins for our Paleo potluck this Fri.. I apologize if this has been asked & answered already, would frozen blueberries do for these? Thanks

  95. I put too much baking powder i think cuz it puffed up then sunk like a ship. 🙁 Still tasted good though!

  96. I’ve made these a few times and love them. Decided to adapt the recipe to hit a craving I had for carrot muffins. I nixed the almond butter, took the honey down to 1/4 cup and added a 1/4 cup each of shredded carrots, walnuts and raisins. Delicious!!

    I made them in silicon muffins wrappers. They were easy to get out, but a little oily so I may take the coconut oil down to 1/4 c too.

    Thanks Juli!!

  97. I make these muffins, a lot! I am working my way into the paleo lifestyle. Instead of the blueberries, though, I put chocolate chips, and it works perfectly. My husband and 5 year old daughter will both eat them, which is really something. Also, I sub 1/4 cup of coconut flour for the almond flour.

  98. Made these last night and unfortunately I was pretty disappointed. I had really high hopes because of all the great reviews, but I’m not sure what went wrong. I followed the recipe exactly, but had to leave out the honey because I’m doing the Whole30. They were extremely dry and heavy. Would honey really make that much of a difference? I made the Sweet Potato Chai muffins w/o honey and they turned out great!!
    Also, what kind of almond butter is everyone using? I used the fresh almond butter from Whole Foods which is really thick…could that be the issue?
